Donate Provide us with some quick information about you and the vehicle

Complete the online form, including your contact information, as well as some general information about the vehicle. Check off as many details that apply, or use the additional boxes, if needed. Not sure about something? Don't worry. Our representatives will follow up, if needed, when they contact you.

Our process is simple, hassle-free and easy to follow. Just fill out our secure form, or let one of our friendly, experienced representatives walk you through the donation procedure. We'll handle everything, from pickup to processing. All we need are your car keys, title and access to your vehicle.

Pickup Schedule your free pickup

When you complete the initial donation process, we'll pick up your donated car. One of our professional towing companies will contact you to work out a convenient day and time, typically within 24 hours. There's no towing charge, nor do you need to wait for the driver. Just make sure you've removed the license plate and any personal items before your pickup day.

We accept all makes and models nationwide, so don't worry if your car's doesn't run, or isn't in top shape. We'll deal with those issues. Nor do we limit donations to vehicles. In most cases, we also accept boats, motorcycles, RVs, vans, and property. Our representatives will be happy to answer whatever questions you have about donating these items.

Deduction Receive your tax deduction

Upon pick-up, the towing company will leave you a tow receipt on our letter head showing that your donated car was picked up on behalf of Cars Helping Veterans. Once we are in possession of your donated car, title, and keys, we will mail or email your IRS tax-deductible receipt in approximately 10 business days.

Donating a car is one of the simplest, most direct steps you can take in bettering our heroes' lives. Your contribution will make a real difference to our disabled, homeless, and wounded veterans where it matters most. If you haven't donated before, now's your chance to support the sacrifices they've made.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

America's veterans need your help...

On any given night, an estimated 9,417 veterans sleep on our streets nationwide. That's 17 percent of America's homeless population, whose many challenges include lack of transportation. Without a reliable car, getting to or from doctor's visits, jobs and social events is often difficult or impossible.

That's where you come in. We believe that no one who defended his or her nation's freedom should face the crushing reality of homelessness. Your 100% tax deductible vehicle donation allows us to continue helping America's heroes in their greatest hour of need. Read on to see how you can make a difference!
